Love this but want a cold version? Try this BLT Dip recipe.
I have this lovely group of ladies who live in my neighborhood. We often get together and call it “book club.” Really though, there are no books. There are just bottles of wine and amazing snacks. The best, right?
One of my neighbor friends makes an amazing cold BLT Dip. I think I ate half of it myself when she brought it to “book club.” I decided to make a hot version for this holiday season because it is so easy and will be a hit at your parties.
HOW TO MAKE BLT DIP
The only time intensive step to this recipe is making the bacon. For a short cut, make your bacon in the oven.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat together the sour cream, mayonnaise and room temperature cream cheese.
- Beat in the onion powder and garlic powder.
- Stir in the cooked bacon, green onions, and tomato.
- Remove from the oven and top with remaining lettuce, tomatoes, and bacon pieces.
- Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.
MAKING AHEAD OF TIME
You can make the mixture for this recipe ahead of time, with one change.
Make it up to the point where you are stirring in the fresh ingredients. Stir in all of the bacon (not saving any for serving on top), but then stop. Transfer to an airtight container and store for up to two days.
When you are ready to serve, take it out of the refrigerator, give it a good stir and then stir in the onions and tomatoes. Bake as directed.
I love serving this recipe with a sturdy cracker, pretzel flats, or tortilla chips.
This BLT Dip is gluten free, so it is a great dip for those with that dietary need. Just be sure to serve it with gluten free crackers. I love Nut Thins for that.
This recipe is also Keto friendly! If you have guests coming over that are following a low carb diet, serving this with cucumber slices is a great idea.
This dip makes four cups – a great amount for a small get together, and still perfect for a big party with lots of other appetizers.
OTHER GREAT PARTY DIPS
If you want to put out a full dip spread at your next party, here are some other great ones:
- This Texas Caviar is a great way to bring in some vegetables.
- I am going to count this Olive Cheeseball as a dip.
- And this delicious Reuben Dip can be made in the slow cooker or oven!

- 3 green onions sliced thin
- 1 1/2 cups mild cheddar cheese shredded

- Cook the diced bacon until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to remove from the skillet, transfer to a paper towel lined plate, and set aside.
- In a large bowl, use a hand held mixter to beat together the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise. Add the onion powder and garlic powder and beat in.
- Reserve about 1/4 cup of bacon and set aside. Reserve about 1/4 cup of diced tomatos and set aside.
- Stir the rest of the bacon, the rest of the tomoatoes, all of the shredded cheese and all of the green onions into the cream cheese mixture.
- Transfer the mixture to a 2 quart baking dish and bake for 25 minutes.

How can this recipe be made as a cold dip?
Lisa Longley says
I haven’t made it yet, but a friend of mine makes a cold version without the cream cheese and the cheddar cheese. I’m sure I will get around to making and publishing that version soon!
I will be waiting to see it, Thanks.

So , what is the cold version of this recipe?
Lisa Longley says
I haven’t published it yet, but I will link it here when I do.
This recipe sounds delicious and am going to make it for our game afternoon!! I also would love to have the recipe of the cold version without the cream cheese and the cheddar cheese as my daughter has allergies relating to the cheeses and also dairy.
